Make me up Chantelle!

“ I believe that God has put in each one of us a special gift, we call it passion! He wants us to live this passion out and honor Him with it. I believe every woman should feel beautiful, and this is my goal. To make every woman that comes to me for a make up session, feel her absolute best.”

From goth to steampunk, Chantelle’s style is impossible to define. However, one thing is certain, passion is what drives her talent. When you hear the word make up, the first thing that comes to mind is beauty. Well, Chantelle believes that make up is more than just a method of improving one’s appearance. She shares with us that when a girl applies make up, she starts to realise things about herself.

She begins to learn who she truly is and who she wants to be. Make up is the ideal form of self expression for a woman. Make up is used as away of getting to know your most inner self. Chantelle also mentioned that throughout her career she has noticed how much of an influence make up has on a girl’s confidence. She has seen a girl’s level in confidence increase during a make up session.

During our interview with Chantlle, she shares with us that what she enjoys the utmost of applying make up to her clients, is seeing how alive and worthy they begin to feel. A lot of women lose self worth due to unpleasant past relationships. And throug make up they begin to see that no matter what the past threw at them, they are still absolutely gorgeous.

Next to focusing her artistic talents towards helping women feel worthy again, Chantelle also shares her gift with any one willing to learn. Through her YouTube channel, she passes on her knowledge to other woman looking to experiment with make up.  Her YoutTube channel is full of tutorials on how to have fun with make up. Trying a new look may lead to a new opportunity.  The channel provides Chantelle with the opportunity to connect with clients and other make up lovers outside of her region.  Chantelle leaves us with these remarkable words, “Forget about the fast lane. If you really want to fly, harness your power to your passion. Honor your calling. Everybody has one. Trust your heart, and success will come to you.”

I’m not saying that putting on make up will change the world or even your life, but it can be a first step in learning things about yourself you may never have discovered otherwise. At worst, you could make a big mess and have a good laugh – Kevyn Aucoin
